Description 

All of Joyama is tuff (from the Italian tufo) is a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash ejected from vents during a volcanic eruption.
BATTLE RUNNER (4P) 5.8, 5.10a, 5.7R, 5.9R Can be done in three pitches. The overhang is the crux. It's a good place to undercling. Just go straight up and over it.
The last pitch (about 40m) is easy but a bit run out.

Location 

South Face of Joyama. The start is the middle of several bolted routes. Homeboy 5.8 is five routes to the left and close to the obvious tree.

Protection 

Sport climbing with bomber anchors at each pitch. You will see old, rusty unused protection as well.
